ATLANTA INTERIOR DESIGNER
On our client's wish list was a white kitchen with wow factor, lots of functional storage, quartz countertops, a broom closet, and a bar for displaying and preparing drinks for friends and family. The old kitchen was small and out of date, so we pulled out everything, including walls, to create an open-concept, brand new kitchen with all the bells and whistles. We added a large, diamond-patterned backsplash, custom black range hood, and an oversized island. Now it’s a modern, unique, workable kitchen with a jaw-dropping aesthetic and the perfect space for our client to entertain and enjoy family dinners together.
COOPER LAKE MODERN
For this project we were given creative license to design modern spaces full of unique elements and personality. In the office, bold, blue accent chairs were paired with an oversized, mirrored wall clock, and the back wall became a focal point for black and white photos of special family moments. In the living room, we gave the fireplace a dramatic update with hexagon marble tile and updated trim. We painted the built-ins under the stairs a dark, contrasting color to make the accessories pop. The dining room got a full makeover, including a live-edge wood table and matching bench paired with modern dining chairs and sideboard. We added wall mirrors which reflect the light from the gold-accented chandelier.
Our clients wanted a white kitchen that would work hard for their family without starting from scratch. So we refinished the wood cabinets and hardwood floors, installed new quartz countertops (including a 2.5” build-up on the custom island), added a marble herringbone backsplash, updated the hardware and fixtures, and built a custom range hood with stained wood band. In the master bath, we knocked out the existing shower and tub to make way for one large glass-surround shower and added two shower niches and an oversized rain shower head. On the floors we used two different charcoal tiles installed on angle, and on the walls we installed custom wood floating shelves and towel hooks.
For this project, we softened the living room by painting the walls a soft white, while built-ins and trim were painted greige for contrast. We brought in new, neutral-upholstered furniture and added pops of color on the built-in styling and accent pillows. The client had an underutilized sunroom, so we pitched the idea of adding a bed swing. The staircase also underwent a dramatic change, as we painted the wood banisters and walls and added a new, textured carpet runner. In the kitchen, we painted the cabinets and walls, refinished the island top, and added new accessories for a fresh, new look. The master bedroom was outdated, so we painted the walls and trim a soft white and added lighter carpet and a new custom bed with oversized sham. But the showstopper in this room is the wood ceiling. Kiln-dried, band-sawn pine was stained to create a gorgeous focal piece.
Our clients were from NYC and asked us to incorporate a piece of home into their office + dining room makeover. So in the office we had this custom vintage mural printed and applied to the wall behind the desk. For lighting, we added two acrylic base floor lamps with gold accents, flanking a modern wood sideboard. The geometric patterned area rug and two teal accent chairs tie in the colors from the adjoining room. In the dining room, we dared to be bold. The walls, trim, and lower ceiling were all painted a deep, rich color, and modern wallpaper was added to the upper ceiling to add a little drama to this small space. We added a new area rug, hung an oversized light fixture, and brought in warmth and texture with curtain panels for the triple window. The antiqued wall mirror reflects light and the wall mural from the opposing office space.
